In 2009, Backflip Studios was created to explore the possibilities of mobile games. The studio wanted to make a meaningful mark on this new technology and took a couple shots with physics-based games. Paper Toss was the first to capture a huge audience. Ninjump followed soon after and helped complete an early portfolio of easy-to-play but hard-to-master games. Those two titles became household brands and are still regarded as momentous influences to this day. Backflip then hit the market with a creature collection game immersed in mystery called DragonVale. Fans helped turn this humble park-builder into the hallmark of Backflip.
After a few years of popular titles, the studio started recruiting from all over the country. Backflip grew and more games were released, picking up critical accolades along the way. The puzzle-RPG, Spellfall, received a Best of App Store award in 2014.
This journey caught the attention of Hasbro Inc. who welcomed Backflip to its family of companies. This alliance created various opportunities to utilize renowned Hasbro properties in new mobile games. Backflip Studios is excited to focus on the future of gaming by embracing technology trends, developing various genres, and exploring new ideas. This dedicated team is always in search of the next great game.
Here at Backflip Studios, we make games the whole family can enjoy. Our designs accommodate many different play styles and routines. We try to ensure that players can achieve everything they want through pure play, but we make it a little easier with in-app purchases. Our games are heavily immersed in exploration, discovery, and awe. We develop a wide variety of experiences to satisfy any craving; physics-flickers, twitch tappers, crazy collections, perplexing puzzlers, addicting adventures, and more! We make games that we would like to play and are confident others will have fun with them too.
